France’s Lille sign Turkish forward Burak Yilmaz
Lille acquired Turkish forward Burak Yilmaz, the French football club said Saturday.

“LOSC [Lille] is proud to welcome Turkish international Burak Yılmaz (35) to its ranks today. The experienced and prolific striker, a Turkish football idol, has signed a two-season contract with the Lille club,” the Ligue 1 team said in a statement.

“#NewPlayerDetected,” the club posted on Twitter, along with a Turkish flag emoji.

Lille also shared a roughly 30-second video showing several goals scored by the Turkish international.

Burak Yilmaz became the third Turkish player in the French team after Yusuf Yazici and Zeki Celik.

Over the course of his career, Turkish international Yilmaz scored 230 goals in 440 matches.

Last season he scored 14 goals in 26 appearances for Besiktas.

In addition to Besiktas, Yilmaz previously played for many Turkish clubs such as Fenerbahce, Trabzonspor and Galatasaray.
